Event Description and Festival Statement (excerpt)

International Animated Film Festival Animocje is focused on an ambitious cinema searching for its artistic character. We want to acquaint our audience with the most interesting authors and the unlimited possibilities of animation. We also give the viewer of the Animocje a chance to explore the practical dimension of this field of art by extensive educational section, including workshops. We also implement some programme priorities. We expect the animated movie to be daring, interesting and innovative in terms of the animating solutions and an outstanding application of traditional techniques.

Through international competition, Animocje provides an opportunity to get to know the latest film productions from all over the world. Special screenings of the feature animated movies and thematic presentations of the short films, allow us to discover the animation in a new context. We also pay attention to the relations between animation and the other arts - music, video games, visual arts, and acting. Since 2014 we are the only Polish festival to award A Dubbing Achievement Prize to the Masters and the Mistresses of animated movie dubbing..

The festival has been organized in the Municipal Cultural Center in Bydgoszcz since 2011. Its creator and coordinator is Weronika Płaczek.
